The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Governor Ayo Fayose is a threat to Nigeria, and democracy.
The Ekiti state chapter of the APC also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the problem of the country.
This is coming on the heels of a statement by Governor Fayose, saying President Buhari scared investors away.
The Ekiti APC spokesman, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said it is the PDP that bred the insecurity that chased foreign investors away.
Olatunbosun added that “During his first term between 2003 and 2006, all international development agencies operating in Ekiti State, including the World Bank and British DFID, relocated from Ekiti when the agencies could no longer cope with the opaque manner Fayose was conducting government’s business in relation to the agencies’ partnership with his administration.”
He said “Again, Fayose’s name rang around the world when he masterminded the greatest electoral fraud in history, mobilising the military for treason to menace the opposition, compromising INEC by illegally obtaining its sensitive materials and drawing on nation’s defence vote to manipulate his election in what is Nigeria’s greatest electoral blues known as Ekitigate.”
Adding that “Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala recently told the world that the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan frittered a heavy foreign reserves built by Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Umar Musa Yar’Adua while he failed to save for the rainy days despite the huge oil receipts within six years but instead resorted to borrowing foreign and local loans to pay salaries while obligations to contractors were ignored, thus piling up the nation’s debts that are disincentive to the in-flow of foreign investments.”
Olatunbosun also said the United States Secretary of State, John Kerry praised President Buhari for his anti-corruption war.
Adding that “Fayose is criticising the President again because more illicit wealth of his associates in the looting of Nigeria is being exposed.
“The latest in the line of his associates named in alleged fraud is Mrs Patience Jonathan, who once described Fayose as his ‘young husband’ at a campaign rally.
“We are equally aware that Fayose is jittery that EFCC may soon quiz him for using state funds to pay lawyers defending Mrs Patience Jonathan whose accounts were recently frozen by the EFCC.
“The greatest fear that always rattles the ‘fearless’ Fayose is whenever a looter is uncovered by the Federal Government because he knows what is coming for him after the EFCC traced billions of illegal funds to his frozen accounts.
“If today Buhari drops his anti-corruption war, Fayose will throw a lavish party to celebrate an open cheque to Ekiti treasury.”
Governor Ayo Fayose also described Buhari as the major problem Nigerians must solve.
